John Yuyi Opens First Solo Exhibition 'Eye Sees No Lashes' in Taiwan

Marking the young creative’s first-ever installation show.

Artist John Yuyi is adding another achievement to her résumé with her first-ever solo exhibition. Titled Eye Sees No Lashes, the show features the Taiwanese creative’s unique vision on topics such as social media and self-identity.

Co-directed by curator Robin Peckham, the space is filled with installation works, which are a first for John Yuyi’s career. As suggested by the title, selected pieces depict distorted faces and cut-out eye motifs. One corner of the exhibition is covered with brown gravel and plant-like figures emerging from the ground.

One of the highlights of the show is a life-size mannequin wearing an extra-long dress printed with John Yuyi’s face. The eye in the image is connected to the figure with vibrant blue hair, making the strands seem like eyelashes. Other installations include a knife stabbing into the wall and face-printed contact lenses.

Take a peep via the gallery above. Eye Sees No Lashes will be on display at Tao Art Gallery until February 20.
